In the end, Marconi's point of view makes for an ultimately frustrating, if still fascinating, 87 minutes of cinema.

Unfortunately, those without extensive previous knowledge of Lagerfeld's legendary career will find little here to enlighten them, a sad waste considering the relative lack of serious cinematic explorations into the fashion world.

Lagerfeld Confidential, while an undisciplined piece of filmmaking, offers a rare glimpse into the soul of the fashion world, with Lagerfeld, as he admits, surviving through his philosophical fixation on The New: life as the proverbial next season.

Anyone hoping for a deeper insight into the fashion designer than his weakness for the construction industry should probably look somewhere other than the insubstantial documentary Lagerfeld Confidential.

Lagerfeld could be the fashion world's Nosferatu: gimlet eyes hidden behind shades as they appraise each new collection; monstrous in his egotism; and, despite his protestations otherwise, painfully lonely after selling his soul to haute couture.

The problem with Rodolphe Marconi naming his documentary Lagerfeld Confidential is that he's promising more than he can deliver.

Marconi's indifference to detail extends to any consideration of what, exactly, Lagerfeld does for a living, not to mention the history of his rise in the fashion world.
